Indica / Sativa / Hybrid : Realities, Option Realities and Classification & Labelling


Here’s their introduction. Right here at CLR it raises, for us, a quantity of problems with regard to  IP, TM, customer rights, labelling and so on and so forth.

When Tantalus Labs, primarily based in Vancouver, British Columbia, sent its 1st provide of cannabis to the provincial distributor, it marked every single single strain as a “hybrid” strain. Following all, none of the strains they have been promoting was a accurate sativa, and none was a accurate indica.

It was the botanically appropriate answer to the query — and a bit of weed nerd humor, even even though the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Board did not obtain the joke very as funny.

“They have been just like, ‘maybe place some of them in other categories,’ ” stated Tantalus Labs CEO Dan Sutton. “We have been like, ‘so we’re all acknowledging that this is just bullshit, ideal?’ Like this does not make any sense. … Any marginally, academically inclined cannabis grower is going to laugh at the notion of indica and sativa classifications.”

This miniature stunt had a point: In the existing cannabis landscape, there is no such issue as a accurate sativa or accurate indica strain.

This 3-part strain system — sativa/indica/hybrid — has been about for practically as extended as the cannabis market place itself. For numerous decades, it has offered a loose framework for categorizing strains by impact: sativa for uplifting effects, indica for sedating effects, and hybrid for anything else.

“Indica or Sativa?” is a query that has established firm roots in weed culture, also

When cannabis grows in the wild, sativa and indica can be correct categorizations, but considering that growers began chopping and splicing the plant’s genetics in search of the subsequent hit strain, the pure, or landrace, strains have practically disappeared. Primarily, anything is a hybrid now.
